Synopsis

Garth Ennis (Preacher) and Darick Robertson (Transmetropolitan), co-creators of two of the most thought-provoking comics of the last decade, introduce their first original collaboration for a new monthly series: THE BOYS a dark, twisted look at super powers, super-people, and the men and women who make sure the world's "heroes" never go too far.

With a quarter-million super-powered beings in the world, someone's got to watch what's going on beneath all those masks and capes. In a U.S.A. uncomfortably like our own, that task falls to The Boys, a government-funded group of operatives dedicated to keeping the "supes" in line.

Butcher, Hughie, The Frenchman, Female, and Mother's Milk. These five make up a team of agents called The Boys. Their sole purpose is to monitor, and even aggressively motivate super humans. You can take that as the censored version of Garth Ennis and Darick Robertson's violent and sexually frustrated comic. Where other comics are afraid to tread, Garth Ennis takes this entire series through the mud and back, and could quite frankly care less what anyone has to say about it. Everything from religion to homosexuality is put right into the spotlight, and usually not it any sort of good way, for us to be confronted by and directly exposed to. With all of that though, it all had to start somewhere, and where better for it to start than DC owned Wildstorm. Let's take a look down the dark alley of comics as we review The Boys.
